LISTEN: ’Nervous’ One Direction Singer Harry Styles Releases Debut Solo Single
It’s a bird…It’s a plane… It’s Harry Styles ! An unofficial One Direction Twitter account tweeted these photos of Harry Styles dangling in the air, filming the music video for his new song, “Sign of the Times.”
Speaking on Britain’s BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw, Styles, who stars in upcoming World War Two drama Dunkirk, said he was “nervous” before introducing the track.
“It’s a bit weird. I feel like I’ve been hibernating in the studio for so long,” he said. “You hear it in the safety of the studio…(and now) it’s time to give birth.”
Upon its debut, British media were quick to draw comparisons with the late David Bowie’s music. “It’s the song I’m most proud of writing I think,” Styles said.
I mean, was that really even a question? Sure Liam Payne might be my favorite member of One Direction, but Harry Styles is a very close second.
The originally five-member One Direction formed on British television talent show The X Factor in 2010 and won legions of fans around the world soon after. The best-selling group was reduced to four members in March 2015 when Zayn Malik announced he was quitting the band.
A few months later, Styles, Horan, Tomlinson and fellow member Liam Payne said the group would be taking a break from early 2016.
